NCAA Football: Western Kentucky at Wisconsin

The 2021 college football season is still almost four months away, but already we are learning about some of the highlights on the schedule for the Big 12 conference this fall.

On Tuesday, ESPN announced three premier games that will be airing on either ABC or ESPN this fall, with three of those four games announced involving Big 12 teams.

First up, the Texas Longhorns on the road against the Arkansas Razorbacks will kick off at 6:00 p.m. CST on ESPN on Saturday, September 11th.

Then, Oklahoma vs. Texas, a.k.a. the Red River Rivalry, will kick off on Saturday October 9th on either ESPN or ABC, with the kick off time still TBD (although the 11 a.m. CST slot is a safe bet).

And last but not least, Bedlam on November 27th between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State in Stillwater will also be on ESPN or ABC, with the kick off time still TBD.


The Big 12 rights are shared by ESPN/ABC and FOX, with the two teams flip-flopping who gets the first pick on some of the premier games in the conference.
